I'm curious about whether it would be possible to bootstrap Fink with a
"seed" FSF GCC distribution (binary, of course; ideally from Fink)
rather than Xcode.
Basically, my thought is that we'd use that as the initial compiler, and
once the current base files are set up we'd install the same gcc4N
version "for real" under package management and tweak linkages with
install_name_tool as required to point to that.
